Moments de fantaisie, Complexité,
I look at various photos of artists, composers, poets --figures of singularity; personalities that stand out because of their creativity and/or reative genius. Often my work involves the artists as well as quotations, figures from their entourage, their own work as a form of painting-collage that I use in my work. Fragments of existence that touches me or fires my imagination.
The painting is after an anonymous photo of the great pianist Vladimir Horowitz and imagination. No resemblance was attempted only the pianist posture in the photo was used as model for work. The writing is a quote from German philosopher Jürgen Habermas translates as “The moments of fantasy/imagination are the feasts/celebrations of History “ (die Augenblicke der Phantasie sind die Feiertage der Geschichte).
